Comodo cCloud Client
Drag files and folders into the Dropzone and watch them upload to your backup space

These days, it’s almost de rigueur to keep at least one backup online. It ensures one copy of your precious files and folders is stored in a remote physical location, away from your computer, so if your home is struck by some form of physical disaster such as fire or theft, you can at least breathe a sigh of relief at the fact your electronic documents are preserved intact.

It’s a cut-throat world out there in the cloud-based backup market, which translates into good news for consumers. Comodo’s cCloud online storage service comes with a free 10GB account, allowing you to dip your toes into the water before committing to a purchase, or – if you’re careful about which files you choose to protect – allowing you to back up online at no cost at all.

The online backup service can be accessed one of three ways: through your web browser, using Comodo’s excellent desktop backup program, Comodo Backup, or via this dedicated, lightweight client.

You’ll need an account – free or otherwise – before you can start to use the service, but Comodo cCloud Client asks you for your account details and gives you the opportunity to create your account before you begin. Once done, you have two ways in which to back up – or sync – your folders with your online storage.

The first is by right-clicking a file and choosing Sync to Comodo cCloud. This ensures the folder or file in question is monitored and updated as it changes.

The other option involves dragging the file or folder – or a snippet of text, web link or bookmark – to the Drop zone, a small semi-translucent window that can be positioned anywhere on the desktop. It hides after a short period of inactivity, but as soon as you drag a file or folder over its location it’ll re-appear, allowing you to back up the selected files and folders quickly.

Once backed up, you can access your files via the web or through Start > Computer where you’ll find your online drive is ready and waiting for you. You’ll find synced files and folders in their appropriate locations, while anything copied via the Dropzone appears under Dropped Files.

It’s an elegant, simple solution, geared more towards backup than file sharing, and is a little inflexible: if 10GB isn’t enough, you have to pay $7.99 a month or $79.95 a year for 100GB of storage, which may be much more than you need.

What's new in v3.0.8.84?

- Improvements in setup install and uninstall process;
- Occasional errors 112175 when uploading/downloading to/from cCloud;
- other minor fixes;

Verdict:

With generous free online storage, in theory it’s a neat, elegant and unobtrusive solution, but a lack of flexibility makes it hard to recommend wholeheartedly.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
